Tips for Selection

Terracotta is commonly used for anything of burnt clay. It has a wide range of products from construction components to utensils and even ornaments.

We manufacture our products mainly through two methods.

1. Wet Clay Process
2. Powdered Clay process

Wet clay process is the very old method of production on which clay is wet grinded at required moisture level , de aired and pressed/ extruded to final products.

Powered Clay process is making of products out of pulverized powdered clay moisturized to the desired level and pressed into shapes

Both the processes are almost similar about strength & durability of the products. The only major difference is in the finishing – appearance and measurement variation of the products. The latter method have more finishing and less size variation comparing to the other ; .But costs higher than the other while the maximum size for the powder process is limited.
